B90Days Group 19/ Hope

Welcome to your group’s check in and communication page for the July- October 2011 edition of the Bible in 90 Days!

Your mentor is Hope.

Hope became a Bible in 90 Days graduate in the Spring of 2011. As a mom, wife, and college student, Hope understands the challenge of committing to such a stringent reading plan. Her advise: “Go forth with prayer and the determination to succeed; ask God to help you each day. Then don’t quit!” Hope blogs at MendingHope and tweets about #B90Days and more at @ihavehope.

Each Monday you are required to visit this page and share where you are in the reading. To do that, leave a comment sharing where you are in the reading (i.e. “I am up to date in the reading,” or “I am up to Genesis 18,” or “I am 4 days behind.”).  After you share your reading status, consider leaving an encouraging comment on someone else’s entry. To do that, click on “reply” under their comment add your comment and your comment will be linked to hers (or his).

This page is a place for your group to connect, pray for each other and hold each other accountable. When you leave your first comment, consider checking the box which says “Notify me of follow-up comments” and fill out the subsequent form. This will enable you to get an email as new comments are added to the page and help you to keep up with your group that way, if you would like.

If you will be unable to check in one week, please contact your mentor directly so that she will know. Also, if you decide to drop out for any reason, please also let your mentor know so we can remove you from the group.

This page will keep all of the comments from the entire session. Newer comments will display at the top.

Thank you for reading with us! I hope you find it to be as amazing as I have every time.

Okay, enough of me… now it’s your time to share.

    Slooowly catching up! But I’m catching up, at least. :)

  • Jennifer Barrineau

    Hi Ladies. It’s been amazing to read the Bible together every day and to know that God is moving in so many hearts through his word. Even if we are not all at the same point, we are all reading. Keep reading. You will finish! Thank you Hope for your encouragement along the way. I am on track to finish Friday.

    • http://mendinghope.com Hope Wilbanks

      Hooray, Jennifer!!! That’s so awesome! I’m proud of you!!

  • Jennifer Barrineau

    I’m on Day 79 today.

  • http://twitter.com/adcalexander Amy

    It’s encouraging to see that others are behind and still plugging away. And I don’t feel so alone in how behind I am. :) I’m working harder at getting somewhat caught up. If you see me at any given time, I’ve got my Bible with me in case I can find a spare minute. :)

    • http://mendinghope.com Hope Wilbanks

      I agree, Amy. It truly blesses me to see the faithful few still hanging in here with me. We may not be current on our reading, but the faithfulness of every lady here is awesome and is to be commended. I just know God is going to bless each of you!

  • Jamie McCann

    still behind too

    • http://mendinghope.com Hope Wilbanks

      Hang in there, Jamie. So glad to see you’re still with us!

  • Cindyajones

    Well i am still behind, but I will finish!

    • http://mendinghope.com Hope Wilbanks

      Love your attitude, Cindy!!! Keep on keepin’ on! ;)

  • http://twitter.com/adcalexander Amy

    I’m still reading, too, but I’m afraid I’ve gotten further behind instead of catching up like I wanted to do. School work, mine and the kids, is taking a lot of time! I am still enjoying reading, though, and I’ve started noticing how it’s making a difference in my day. I wouldn’t stop for anything now, behind or not!

    • http://mendinghope.com Hope Wilbanks

      I love your attitude, Amy!!! I feel the same way. I’m *super* behind now, but I’m not going to quit. If it takes me 90 more days, I’m going to finish this round of reading! ;)

  • Jennifer Barrineau

    Sorry I am late posting. I am still a day behind in the reading. Last week was crazier than I thought it would be. It was great to make it to the NT this week. Loving every reading moment.

    • http://mendinghope.com Hope Wilbanks

      So glad to see you’re still with us, Jennifer!!

  • Cindyajones

    I am still behind but I’m going to keep reading when I can!

    • http://mendinghope.com Hope Wilbanks

      Keep it up, Cindy! Glad to hear you’re still with us! :)

  • http://mendinghope.com Hope Wilbanks

    I’m sorry I’ve been so quiet lately, ladies. Too much on my plate. I’m still reading, but further behind. But I’m not letting that stop me. ;) How are YOU doing this week?

  • Jamie McCann

    I’m halfway here with you. : ( I’m so behind, but still reading a little bit anytime I can…

    • http://www.momstoolbox.com Amy @ MomsToolbox

      I love that you are still doing your best and finding time to read. :) Keep it up!

  • http://twitter.com/adcalexander Amy

    I’m still here, chugging away! Still behind, I have three papers due this week, so it’s been crazy for me. I’m hoping once I get them behind me, I’ll get all caught up. I’d love to be caught up. Lol

    • http://www.momstoolbox.com Amy @ MomsToolbox

      I hope all those papers are done and you are feeling some relief. Hang in there. :)

  • Jennifer Barrineau

    I’m on Day 63 today, so I’m a day behind. Tuesdays are usually crazy days for me, so hopefully I will catch up on Wednesday and Thursday. Have a great everyone :)

    • http://mendinghope.com Hope Wilbanks

      Glad you’re still with us, Jennifer! You’re doing great!! :)

  • http://mendinghope.com Hope Wilbanks

    Good morning, gals! How’s everyone doing? Still with us? I’m (still!) behind, but reading. I started Jeremiah this morning. I had a rough weekend–sick. Didn’t get much sleep Saturday night, so I was up VERY early yesterday morning and spent a couple of hours in the Word. God spoke lots to my heart during that special time, too. I’m just in awe of how I get something different each time I read it. :) God is good!

  • Jamie McCann

    You may want to check out Joel Rosenberg’s books. He takes the prophecy in Ezekiel 38-39 and turns them into real life scenarios which have all come true. I’m reading Epicenter right now which is about how he came to the conclusions he has just by watching countries around the world and taking their threats seriously. It’s very interesting!

    • Jennifer Barrineau

      Thanks Jamie! I actually have Epicenter on my “to read list”. I hope to read more of some other great books once I finish B90D.

  • Jamie McCann

    I’m still behind as well, but still reading….

  • http://twitter.com/adcalexander Amy

    I’m still behind, too, but catching up pretty well. I just squeeze some reading in at every opportunity I can. I’m still enjoying it! I’m loving reading things that I’ve never read before. :)

  • http://mendinghope.com Hope Wilbanks

    How’s everyone doing? I’m still behind (about a week), but I’m reading every day and reading extra whenever I can. It’s been crazy here, with the kids starting a new school, my own school work, sickness, and then the weather this past weekend. I’m looking forward to a quiet week! ;)

  • http://mendinghope.com Hope Wilbanks

    Alright, Jennifer! Way to go! :)

  • Jennifer Barrineau

    Happy Labor Day! I hope all of you will get to relax a little and spend some time with family today. I am up to date in the reading. The books of prophecy are fascinating. I wish I understood them better though!

  • http://headant.com Head Ant

    I am at least eight books behind. Don’t feel bad! We can do this. Usually when I participate in prayer groups, devotionals, etc, I get behind. I think it’s Satan at work trying to make us depart from the Word of God.

  • http://twitter.com/adcalexander Amy

    School started a couple of weeks ago for me and my girls, and because of that, I’m so far behind, it’s not even funny. I’m not giving up! I’m trying not to get disheartened. :) Hopefully, once we get a good routine going, I’ll get all caught up. Crossing my fingers. :)

  • http://mendinghope.com Hope Wilbanks

    How’s everyone doing this week? I’m still running behind on the reading schedule, but hanging in there. ;) My kids started school today so hopefully I’ll be able to get caught up on my Bible reading AND my school work.

  • Jamie McCann

    I’m right there with you Cindy. It’s a little discouraging getting further behind, but I am still reading too…

    • http://mendinghope.com Hope Wilbanks

      Don’t be discouraged, Jamie! Just keep reading…that’s all that matters. Hang in there!

  • Cindy Jones

    Hey I’m getting further behind each day and I see no way of catching up, but I’m going to keep reading.

    • http://mendinghope.com Hope Wilbanks

      So glad to hear you’re still with us, Cindy! That’s what’s most important…keep reading. You are such an inspiration!!

  • http://headant.com Head Ant

    I am still way behind. We’ve had plenty of craziness over here.

    • http://mendinghope.com Hope Wilbanks

      Bless your heart!! Hang in there! Glad you’re still with us!!

  • Jennifer Barrineau

    I’m up to date. Enjoying this so much. Praying for all of you ladies. You can do it.

    • http://mendinghope.com Hope Wilbanks

      Good job, Jennifer!!

  • http://twitter.com/adcalexander Amy

    Sorry I hadn’t checked in yet. Crazy busy with all the school stuff. Still a bit behind, but I’m chugging along. Little Engine That Could. :)

    • http://mendinghope.com Hope Wilbanks

      I totally understand, Amy. Glad you’re still with us!!

  • http://mendinghope.com Hope Wilbanks

    How’s it going, everyone? I just sent out your weekly email reminder to check in. Sorry I’ve been quiet. Been super busy with school. I’m a little behind, but working on catching up. Y’all still hanging in there with me?

  • Jamie McCann

    Still behind, but still reading….

  • Jennifer Barrineau

    Sorry I’m late. I am up to date in the reading.

  • Jennifer Barrineau

    Sorry I’m late. I am up to date in the reading.

  • Crystal B

    I’m still behind (and 2 weeks late checking in!) but I’m still reading. I guess I’ll be the pokey little puppy on this challenge. ;)

  • Jamie McCann

    Sorry I’m late! I’m still here and still reading! Quite a bit behind, but still reading! : )

    • http://mendinghope.com Hope Wilbanks

      Better late than never, Jamie. ;) So glad you’re still with us!

  • http://twitter.com/adcalexander Amy

    I’m so glad to see I’m not the only one behind! :) I’m still hanging in there, and even though I’m behind, I’m still enjoying it! We can do y’all! :D

    • http://mendinghope.com Hope Wilbanks

      Yay, Amy!!! I got a little behind this weekend, so I’m playing catch-up today. ;)

  • http://headant.com Head Ant

    I’m way behind too; but I’m still working to catch up.

    • http://mendinghope.com Hope Wilbanks

      Kudos to you for hanging in there!!

  • Jennifer B

    I finished Day 29 this morning. Going to try the Twitter Party tonight. I have not really “caught on” to Twitter but I thought I would give it a try for B90D!

    • http://mendinghope.com Hope Wilbanks

      Way to go, Jennifer! I haven’t been able to do the Twitter parties. Way too overwhelming for me. ;)
